The thermal couple on the gas valve is not working, if this oven is old the thermal couple can be replaced independantly of the gas valve,
if is's newer the whole valve assembly must be replaced. if you have never worked on gas appliances call a pro by the way the valves run about $125.00 you might want to consider replacing the appliance

Main oven works but the ignition keeps clicking while oven on


check the operators manual or with a servicing agent
being gas it may require the clicking to reignite the gas when the temp starts to cycle or there may be a problem in the control system for the gas operation

Electric heating not working


Surface burners
are typically either a coil type, solid type or a ribbon coil as used in smooth top ranges. All of these consist of a heating wire that uses electric current to produce heat. Coil type elements can be checked for continuity by removing them from the terminal block and testing them with a multi-meter.

You should also inspect the terminal ends for signs of heat damage or corrosion, and if present, you should replace the terminal block or receptacle at the same time. You will need to remove power from the range to change the terminal block. Solid elements and smooth top elements require raising or removing the main top to gain access. You will need to remove power from the range before lifting the main top. Continuity can then be checked with a multi-meter, once you have removed the wires from the element terminals.

On modern electronic control ranges, the oven temperature sensor
is the part that regulates the oven temperature. If it is not working properly it could be the reason why the range or oven won't start. This part can be found inside the oven on the rear wall near the top. Most modern ovens will display a fault code if the oven sensor is at fault. If you think the sensor may be the issue you can check the resistance with a multi-meter but will need to know the correct resistance of the sensor at room temperature. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test.

The infinite switch
on the control panel controls the power to each surface element. If you have no heat at an element and the element and terminal block check ok, then you may have a defective infinite switch. Disconnect power to the range and remove the console back panel. Locate the switch and check for overheated wires or faulty terminals first. Test the switch's contacts for continuity with a multi-meter. If defective, replace the switch.
If the infinite switch does not appear to be defective, then you should check for proper voltage to the switch. This is a live high voltage test and should only be performed by qualified persons.

Most modern ovens use an electronic control board
to control the oven functions. These models will use the control board to operate the oven safety valve on a gas range or oven, and the bake and broil elements on an electric range or oven. If there is no power to the igniter circuit, or the element circuits, then you should check the control board to verify that there is power at the appropriate output relay. These are live voltage checks and should be performed by qualified persons only. If there is no output voltage then the control should be replaced.


The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.

My oven is trying to ignite but not lighting. Can I light the oven manually and safely use while the ignition continues to spark.


You MUST NOT light the oven manually and must not use it if it continues to spark. More info is needed, make model etc

I have a 36'' Wolf LP oven with 4 burners and a charbroiler in the center, When lighting the charbroiler, the electronic igniter continues clicking up to 5 minutes after the charbroiler lights


Hi.

The igniters are all controlled by a main hub switch located under the cooktop panel.

Replace the sparking igniters module to fix the sticky igniters problem.

Regards.

Ginko.

I just installed one in my house. I found that when you start the lower (gas) oven you need to turn the dial all the way on to 500*, push the knob in (you should hear the igniters clicking), then even when you see flames coming out of the burner, continue the ignition for 10 to 15 seconds. It should continue to stay lit thereafter.

Whirlpool gold accubake oven won't re-ignite


i have a whirlpool gas accubake range and only two burners will ignite. The other two burners make a clicking sound and release gas but never light. I have to use a match to light the other two burners and the flame is uneven on one. What should i do?

Oven won't light


you should have an igniter set up in the oven follow the the front of the burner to the end (back) you should see the igniter follow the wires from the igniter to the elec- safety valve unplug those two wires and tape them together make sure stove is unplugged before you start his process. now plug in oven does igniter light if yes safety valve is bad if no unplug oven from outlet unwrap tapped wires and reinstall them where they came from it would help if you had a ohm meter cut th wires coming out of the igniter not too short in case you have to reconnect them but you will need ceramic wire nuts the do not melt after you cut the wires from the igniter check for continuity @ the igniter no continuity means bad igniter ,i doubt the thermostat is bad but we can troubleshoot it tommorrow if these steps dont work
